Many of us are expecting the new Sony Xperia Z2 smartphone. Although this device is about to launch, there is another smartphone that the people at Sony want to bring to the market, namely the Xperia T2 Ultra. From what we have heard so far, this will happen in the not too distant future.
The Xperia T2 Ultra will have a 6 inch HD IPS display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels (245 ppi), Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 platform (MSM8928), quad core 1.4 GHz ARM Cortex A7 processor, 1 GB RAM, Adreno 305 GPU, 8 GB internal storage, a main camera with a 13 MP sensor and a 1.1 MP secondary camera. The Xperia T2 Ultra smartphone will have a dual-SIM version and its battery will be 3000 mAh, giving it a range of 46.6 days in standby or 30 hours of talk or 93 hours of music. The price of this 165 x 84 x 7.7 mm and 172 grams smartphone will be about € 400.
Xperia T2 Ultra good news, PS4 not so good news
Although things are looking good in the smartphone department, Xperia Z2 and Xperia T2 Ultra, things are not so good in terms of gaming. The Playstation 4 console from Sony sells more devices than Microsoft’s rival Xbox One. This is no longer a novelty: in February in the U.S. were sold for 287.000 units of PS4 and 258.000 units of Xbox One. And part of the reason is the $ 100 lower price. But Sony has noticed the situation and is taking action, like raising the price for the console and its accessories. The first “victim is Canada”, which will see an increase in price from $ 400 to $ 450. And the DualShock 4 controller and the Eye camera will also be more expensive, but only by $ 5.
Sony is thus trying to make profit and grow, counting on the fact that demand will not decrease. What do you think will happen in terms of sales, especially considering the fact that the more expensive Xbox One comes with the Kinect package?
